The pandemic has prompted a shift to non-store channels, including delivery and click & collect, accelerating a trend that was already well established. For many, the response has been tactical with a 'whatever it takes' approach to serving customers however they wish. In tandem with the drive to reduce waste, there are important questions about whether the status quo is sustainable or whether a fundamental re-think and re-design of supply chain operations, enabled by digital technologies, is now an urgent priority. If so, how?
